tennis • After three consecutive tournament exits against low-ranked opponents, Roger Federer pulled out of next week's Rogers Cup in Montreal without giving a reason Friday.

The owner of a record 17 Grand Slam titles did recently complain about a bad back, however.

Federer, who turns 32 Thursday, made the unusual move of participating in a pair of minor clay-court tournaments in the period between Wimbledon and the North American summer hard-court season. Federer lost to 116th-ranked Sergiy Stakhovsky in the second round at the All England Club.
